Skip to comments.Obama keeps promise to young men of color
Posted on 02/11/2014 8:53:20 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
President Obama is expected to launch his most focused efforts to address the dire prospects of young men of color this week, a demographic far too often swept into cycles of poverty and the school-to-prison pipeline.
Obama will unveil details of a new initiative called My Brothers Keeper on Thursday, which will draw on partnerships with foundations and businesses to target young men of color across the country with a range of opportunities and strategies to help bolster their lives.
The initiative, which will offer every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential, according to a White House official, has two key aspects.
The first part involves a group of business and foundation leaders who have come together around implementing and testing strategies in various cities that zero in on key moments in the lives of young men times where interventions have shown the most impactful results. That includes making sure the children are ready to learn once they get to school and keeping them out of the criminal justice system.
The second element is an internal effort within the federal government that will focus on using results and evidence to evaluate what has worked and what hasnt. This component will use existing federal resources and the information learned will be shared with the public in hopes of spreading best practices...

Yea ... let them get away with anything, as long as it is against anybody white.
a tremendous number of NON-Prejudiced people are sick and tired of all these racist programs using, spending our tax money based on skin color
Yeah, everything except promote the traditional family and the associated values. Never mind the use of Cain’s words once more.
more race-baiting is it?
Like South Africa under the ANC. Next stop is Zimbabwe under ZANU-PF.
Whatever it is, it’s not gonna end well.
The “school-to-prison pipeline”? Really? Maybe the stupid recruits should just throw a “monkey wrench” into the works to avoid that outcome. I’m just sayin’...
Enough with the “color” already.
Try to think AMERICAN.
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set.
Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” ~Barack Obama
They will learn eventually ... Obama hates everyone as does Hillary.
Everything I Learned About Racism Was On Tuesday, January 20, 2009.
Well that’s mighty Black of him! Screw the young men who lack pigmentation. Why don’t Obama, the Salt Vampire he married and Holder just stand with clenched fist raise and scream Black Power! They might as well with their lack of subtlety.
My brother’s keeper? zero’s brother lives in a hut and had to ask Dinesh D’Souza for money for medical expenses.
Wow. And it’s only been 5 years...
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin.”
...laying on his back, bleeding to death?
I have long said that the “hyphen” in anyone-American is NOT a hyphen, it’s a MINUS SIGN!
You got that right.
Obama can't change the high rates of unwed motherhood and the RAVAGES from fatherless families.
I once read a comment saying that it would be NICE if the African-American community could have a discussion, dialogue, whatever, without ONCE using the word "white."
I don't think it could be done. What do you think?
Blah blah blah. If you read those two paragraphs again, you'll notice that there's nothing concrete that can be measured and evaluated. There's only platitudes and an opportunity to throw some taxpayer money around. I want a job writing crap like that.
"The effort will hinder inner city divisiveness, replacing it with a counterbalance of opportunity and uplift. Funding for growth and life-bettering educational efforts will come from existing programs repurposed and reevaluated with an emphasis on collaboration in a public and private spirit of cooperation..."
What color? I has a color, but I suspect it is not what Obunghole has in mind with his amorphous phrase.
Does the White House provide MSNBC with text files of these press releases? I’d hate to think they send over printed copy and make the journalist input the whole thing manually.
We're his Aunt's Keeper and his Uncle's Keeper....
Now we have a program for His Brother's keeper too.
(and, aren't all his brothers living in other countries...like his Aunt and Uncle should be?)
Most. Divisive. President. Ever.
Blacks will continue to be enslaved as long as they let those frauds who call themselves “leaders of the black community” (Obama, Sharpton, Holder, Jackson, etc) tell them what to do and how to think.
And as long as those guys are directing things, the word “white” will always have a prominent place.
I don’t see a “No chance of working” option. I wonder why.
"It's an intentionally racially divisive money laundering and voter fraud operation, glazed like a donut with platitudes and cliches to make goofy white liberals smile and feel good."
Frankly, I truly find this statement frightening. Especially in light of the Philly polling place event (Black Panther intimidation which was never prosecuted, and this was in the lying scum’s first term). Also, in light of the refusal to recognise the hate-crime pattern in the knockout king “game”. Also, in light of the ongoing effort to disarm law-abiding citizens.
His real brother, who lives on $12 a month in Kenya, must find this ruefully amusing.
I noticed that too. The poll options are all either positive or neutral. There is no option for people who think the program will fail.
And all this while the shrinking productive class can’t afford to support their own children. I’m sure some Appalachian barely hanging on to a job will be just thrilled to learn that his taxes will support “youths of color” while his own children can just go cook meth.
It's the jaw-boning of an ass. A braying ass.
Immaculate deception, is only a moment away...
LOL and for his next Act he will introduce the Moabite Population Control Center with subsidized methane for every baby cooker sold.
The “It will fail spectacularly” option is missing.
Notice he didn't say young black men. Hispanic is in.
“a demographic far too often swept into cycles of poverty and the school-to-prison pipeline.”
Sadly, true. And just as true is that it is not primarily government that is needed to fix this. Indeed, it may well be that government has worsened the problem. The nuclear family has been all but destroyed in the black community, and I believe that is the biggest cause of many of the problems in the inner city and black community. And some of that destruction can absolutely be laid at the feet of government policies.
Government can help in certain ways, such as getting out of the way. Implement school choice, etc. But the heavy lifting is going to have to come from within the black community itself. Strong families lead to good things, more often than not. And no government program can do that.
Now I know these are radical ones but maybe teach them that a real man is more than a sperm donor, thug, drug addict, thief and street hustler.
I know, that's all way too much to ask (axk) for but I am just trying to help.
Maybe Obama will let them use their EBT cards to contribute $5.00/mo to a retirement account, so they won’t be such a burden on society if they aren’t murdered by other MOCs (Males-Of-Color) or serving life sentences for murder beforehand.
“keeping them out of the criminal justice system.”
So now it is the federal governments self-appointed “job” to keep colored people(Guess that’s not considered racist term anymore seeing as it’s really no different than “person of color)out of prison. Um, what happened to personal responsibility? So now the gov. is spending its precious time and our limited resources on criminals or would-be criminals. We all know the inner city youts need guidance because sadly they aren’t getting it in the way of strong family right now but is this really the way to go about it? Gosh I’m so sick to death of all the pandering and hand wringing whether it be over the illegal Mexicans, the gays, democrats stupid made up arguments like the “war on women” black people with chips on shoulders, good Lord this country’s inhabitants really need to grow the F up.
You got a problem with that, Barkey? Are white women required to NOT protect their purses? Are white people required to NOT lock their car doors? Even Jesse Jackson admitted he would rather be followed by a white man than a black man.
If a black yoot is coming at me, am I required to NOT expect him to punch me in the head? Am I required to act stupidly so as not to offend someone?
Affirmative action push, no experience necessary, whites and others need not apply, this is a life long job, no worries about layoffs or firings, pick up your free 60K job on the way out to start. Corporations who volunteer will be rewarded, eventually as we move down the road those who refuse to comply will be punished.
...has no need for such a program in the first place.
I pity anyone who has to work alongside people who were given the job because of their race instead of real qualifications; it is very stressful. There is job security in it (since somebody has to do the real work), but they are exposed to behavior and attitudes normally only seen on TV.
“Obama can’t change the high rates of unwed motherhood and the RAVAGES from fatherless families”
O- ye- have little faith!!
He can change their lives!
1. More abortions!—Done

3. More racial divide! Done
4. More debt on ANY working black man EVER! Done
5. Attack All Christian institutions! Done
and the list goes on..
